Our 11:00 AM service offers a unique professionally produced curriculum based on three basic truths modeled by Jesus to teach our children a biblical perspective on handling their daily lives. Curricular goals are modeled around these truths. “I need to make the wise choice; I can trust God no matter what; and I should treat others the way I want to be treated”. Through Bible verse, story and unique activities, our children learn self-control, honor, kindness, forgiveness and much more. The following gives a perspective of the curriculum:
